Facility Decommissioning

APTIM provides extensive facility decommissioning services to federal, utility, and energy markets allowing us to lead the process of strategically dismantling a facility that is no longer needed. This process can be very complex, which is why we offer solutions for safety, planning, and execution.

Whether you have a nuclear facility that needs a plan for removing radioactive material from the site, or closing down a fossil fuel or industrial plant, we incorporate facility decommissioning safety protocols and procedures for you and your entire team.

APTIM’s Facility Decommissioning Capabilities

We begin with an engineering assessment for partial or full closure of your facility, which means we help you determine the most cost-effective, safe, and efficient way to decommission, decontaminate, and demolish your building when necessary. Our area of focus is on providing these services for power plants, ships, and industrial facilities worldwide.

Initial risk-based cost estimates for base rate justification, detailed cost estimates, and environmental surveys all help you make an informed decision regarding the demolition, remediation, and property transfer of your plant or facility.

Once you have made the decisions regarding your asset disposition, APTIM supports execution as owner’s engineer, construction manager, or demolition contractor.
